Township Man Offers to Flip for Mueller

(2018-09-15) — In the wake of a plea deal between Robert Mueller and one-time Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, a township man said he, too, will flip for Mueller if the Special Prosecutor can take care of some unpaid parking tickets and “the small matter of some back taxes and delinquent child support.”

Official Washington and Twitter lit up like a Christmas tree upon learning that the township man, a Trump supporter, would turn state’s evidence on the leader he thought would ‘Make America Great Again.’

It’s not known whether the township man has any useful evidence against Trump, but experts say the very fact that he’s willing to make a deal is considered damning.

“This is it,” said one unnamed Washington Post reporter, who agreed to quote himself on condition of anonymity. “The president might as well roll over and expose his jugular to Mueller. When this guy starts talking, all of the things we imagine Trump must have done will finally come out. Game. Set. Match.”

As a cooperating witness, the township man said he’s willing to share what he knows about the inner workings of the Trump campaign, calling himself “a person of interest.”

“I’m definitely a person of interest — very interested in stuff like that,” he said. “I read stuff. I watch stuff. I hear stuff. I can’t say much more without jeopardizing my potential deal with Mr. Mueller.”

Rudy Giuliani, the president’s attorney, said he’s not concerned about what the man might tell the special prosecutor because the way the Trump campaign, and administration, are structured “prevents anyone from knowing anything.”

Maddow’s Secret Tape Snags Nunes Agreeing with Self

(2018-08-09) — MSNBC commentator Rachel Maddow has released a “revelatory” secret recording of Republican California Rep. Devin Nunes making unguarded comments at a closed-door GOP fundraiser in which Nunes privately echoes his own public comments.

The blockbuster recording demonstrates conclusively that Nunes believes..

  • Attorney General Jeff Sessions should not have recused himself from the Russia investigation,
  • that Special Counsel Robert Mueller should wrap up his probe,
  • that Republicans in Congress may be the last line of defense for President Trump, and
  • that his party needs to maintain its House majority.

While all of these are opinions Nunes has publicly avowed, it’s devastating to hear them on a secret recording made by activist interlopers at a private fundraising event, according to people who secretly tape private meetings.

A Liberal activist group, FUSE Washington, paid to infiltrate the GOP gathering. That investment paid off in some hot-mic moments that reverberated around the Capitol this morning.

“It’s one thing for a Congressman to say he supports Trump, wants the Mueller probe to end, and his party to dominate the legislature,” said an unnamed Democratic aide. “But on this dinner recording, with the sound of utensils on plates, when Nunes didn’t know he was being taped, to hear him say the same thing he usually says — well, that’s virtually unprecedented in D.C.. Nobody does that.”

Rachel Maddow’s exclusive release of these stunning recordings seems likely to vault her onto the list of journalists who would be a household name if anyone were watching MSNBC.
